Iirc it was an intermediate merge issue between two patch series. If
you still see this on your tip, please scream. The warning is just one
of our modeset sequence asserts firing.

A bit surprising since the only psr issue I was aware of was that we
failed to entire psr (and that is likely a fumble in the tracking of
cursor updates). Otoh PSR isn't enabled on baytrail because it's
hang-happy there and the testcase we have for all the corner-cases in
psr tracking turned out to be completely broken and no on fixed this
yet. Anyway thanks for digging this up and pushing the revert
yesterday - I was already in w/e mode ;-)
